Up on the Roof at East Jefferson General Hospital

This October, residents of the Greater New Orleans area which includes 1st Lake’s apartments in Metairie, Kenner and River Ridge have the opportunity to attend a fabulous party for a great cause.

1st Lake Properties is proud to present East Jefferson General Hospital’s Up on the Roof event on Friday, October 18. This will be the seventh annual event in this EJGH series and aims to outdo last year’s 1,500 guests that contributed to over $135,000 raised for quality healthcare in the community. The money goes to fund specialized patient care, advanced technology and capital expansion projects for EJGH through INSPIRE, their competitive grants fund. Since 2006, the foundation has granted over $3.8 million to obtain new cancer fighting technologies, new ambulances, and the expansion of the EJGH cancer infusion center.

Up on the Roof is held on the roof of EJGH and will offer dozens of local, national and international beers for attendees to sample, as well as food from great local restaurants. As a thank you to the Up on the Roof sponsors, a patron party will precede the main event at 6:00 p.m. Up on the Roof is open to the public starting at 7:00 p.m. going to 10:0 p.m. and tickets are $45 in advance or $55 at the door.

Besides an extensive selection of craft brews, delicious local food and beautiful, scenic rooftop views, partygoers will be able to enjoy live music performed by The Boogie Men. All this fun combined with an important fundraiser will make for an unforgettable night that’s not to be missed. Get your tickets to Up on the Roof today!
